HIRSHBERG ENTREPRENEURSHIP INSTITUTE / Boulder, CO
Speaker: eCommerce
The Hirshberg Entrepreneurship Institute features speakers and panelists with unparalleled expertise in the natural products industry. The benefit of that collective perspective and insight alone is enough reason to book these dates now! But the cherry on top of this event is the not-so-hidden extra value of meeting and mixing with the other attendees—entrepreneurs who are doing, or have done, the same things you are. Because the things that make entrepreneurship great—independence, self-reliance, autonomy—can also be the things that make it challenging. After all, even the freest of free agents among us sometimes craves smart feedback and validating connections from peers.

All put together, you can see why two days at the Hirshberg Institute is such a fantastic opportunity for entrepreneurs everywhere to learn valuable information, share best practices, make new connections, and recharge those self-starting batteries!
